Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap of final practice for the Sylvania 300. His top speed was 135.357 mph.
With Brad Keselowski winning every session until this point of the weekend, it was important for Gordon and team to send a message that the No. 2 would not go uncontested. Gordon has finished second to Keselowski in the last two races at Chicagoland and Richmond. Sep 20 - 12:29 PM

Jeff Gordon carries the momentum of back-to-back runner-up finishes from Richmond and Chicagoland into New Hampshire for the Sylvania 300 and he was one of the strongest contenders this July in the Camping World RV Sales 301 before running out of fuel during the final caution flag.

Last week Brad Keselowski beat Gordon for the second time in as many races, but if the battle comes down to these two at New Hampshire, fantasy owners can expect Gordon to be quite a bit more aggressive since he still needs a win in the Challenger round to automatically advance to the Contender round.

For the second consecutive week, Jeff Gordon finished second to Brad Keselowski. Last week, he was the runner-up at Richmond and this week he finished 1.76 seconds behind the Penske racer in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

Most experts predict that the championship battle is going to come down to Penske versus Hendrick and fantasy owners have seen nothing in the past two races to suggest that prediction is incorrect. Both Gordon and Keselowski are equally strong on next week’s short, flat track in New Hampshire.

After slapping the wall at Atlanta in his most recent attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5- or two-mile track, Jeff Gordon hopes to get back on target at Chicagoland.

Gordon has a victory at Kansas this May and Michigan in August to give him some momentum entering the weekend. Even in his one poor finish, he was running second in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta when he cut a left front tire.

Jeff Gordon finished second in the Federated Auto Parts 400 without leading a lap. He spent 396 of 400 laps inside the top five, however, with his four circuits outside that mark coming immediately after a restart.

Restarts have been Gordon’s Achilles Heel all season, but that would not have made any difference at Richmond since Brad Keselowski was so dominant. Points and consistency will matter in the final 10 races of the season and Gordon is well poised in that regard.

Jeff Gordon will race Chassis No. 24-816 this weekend. It was raced four times previously in 2014, including in the April Toyota Owners 400.

Gordon was stout in the spring race and led 173 laps on his way to a second-place finish. On Friday, he picked up where he left off and will line up to the outside of the front row. If the race has long green flag segments, the No. 24 should challenge for the win.
Sep 5 - 9:25 PM

Jeff Gordon had the quickest 10-lap session in Richmond’s first practice. He posted a speed of 123.880 mph during his first circuits on the track.

A total of 32 drivers made 10-lap runs, but many of them were recorded in the second and third hours, which skew the statistic considerably. Even though track conditions will be warmer, final practice may be much more indicative of a driver’s strength.

Jeff Gordon is the top-ranked driver at Richmond for the Federated Auto Parts 400. Three of his last six attempts on this track ended in top-fives, including a second in the spring 2014 Toyota Owners 400.

Equally important, some of Gordon’s best efforts have come in the fall in recent seasons. He finished third in 2009 and 2011 with a second-place finish coming in 2012.
Sep 3 - 8:53 PM

After posting the quickest 10-lap average in the second session, Jeff Gordon backed that up with another top speed in final practice. He posted a speed of 183.299 mph during his first 10 laps on the track and reportedly had the quickest five- and 15-lap averages as well.

Gordon was considered a favorite at the beginning of the week and he has done absolutely nothing to change a player’s mind. His 10-lap average in the second practice session was only 181.050 mph, which underscores how much speed the track picked up in late afternoon. He will start ninth on Sunday, which puts him in the sweet spot for winners in the past several years.

Jeff Gordon posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice for the Oral-B USA 500. His speed of 181.050 mph was posted during his first 10 laps on track.

Gordon also reportedly had the fastest five- and 15-lap averages, which makes him a challenger for the victory Sunday night if the race includes a long, green flag segment at the end.
Aug 30 - 4:45 PM

Jeff Gordon will drive chassis No. 24-861 in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta this week. This car has been raced four times previously in 2014.

Gordon finished sixth with this chassis in the spring Michigan race, seventh at Charlotte and Darlington, and 13th at Auto Club. The pavement at Atlanta is similar to what he faced in California, but Gordon has finished in the top 10 in every other race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks, so he should be viewed as a favorite to do so again.

On Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Jeff Gordon is scheduled to make his 750th career Sprint Cup Series start.

Firsts at Atlanta: On March 14, 1992 he won from the pole at AMS to capture his first ever NASCAR victory in what is now known as the Nationwide Series. His first start in NASCAR’s premier series occurred at Atlanta in the 1992 season finale, which also marked Richard Petty’s final race. Gordon also clinched his first Cup Series championship at Atlanta in the final race of 1995. He leads active drivers with five wins, 16 top-five finishes, 26 top-10s and 1,297 laps led in 40 Cup starts at the 1.54-mile track.-Hendrick Motorsports

No matter how a player handicaps the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta, Jeff Gordon should be considered a top choice. He has a perfect record of top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year and enters the weekend with three consecutive top-10s at Atlanta.

Atlanta is also the site of one of his most recent wins. He grabbed the checkered flag in the 2011 AdvoCare 500 and backed that up with a second the following year. After struggling last week in Bristol, he will be looking for redemption.

Fighting apparent handling issues, Jeff Gordon went from being a top-five contender in the early stages of the Irwin Tools Night Race to fighting simply to stay on the lead lap in the final minutes. He lost that battle and finished 16th Saturday night.

Gordon appeared to be unstoppable the previous week at Michigan and should have been a good bet to challenge for the victory again on this short track. His struggles underscore how difficult this recently reconfigured track has become to handicap in recent years.
Aug 24 - 6:42 PM

Jeff Gordon missed the pole by 8/1,000ths of a second and will lineup second for Saturday night’s Irwin Tools Night Race.

Gordon started on the front row last week and won the Pure Michigan 400. Starting up front is going to be one of his keys to success this week and Gordon should be considered a favorite to finish in the top five.
